What Is This Bizarre Slimy Green Creature?

Why is it pulsing? / Wei Cheng Jian

What is this creature in the video below and why is its every move terrifying?

 

 

Wonder no more: the green gloop is a ribbon worm (Nemertea) and the pink projection that curves over its body is its proboscis tongue.

The viral video is reported to have originated "in Taiwan, when the animal was spotted by uploader Wei Cheng Jian while he was fishing in a port."
